In a given weekend I probably spend $30 to $50. What do I spend it on? I usually have no idea where my money goes. When I heard about student activities selling tickets to the Flyers hockey game my first thought was how much.
A ticket that regularly sells at $51 to the general public was only $20 to Cabrini students. Twenty bucks to see the Philadelphia Flyers take on the Buffalo Sabres in opening night at the newly-named Wachovia Center; does it get any better than that? Did I mention that twenty bucks gets you transportation to and from the game, a Flyers baseball cap, and of course admission to the game. Jason Bozzone, director of student activities, even arranged for Cabrini College to be recognized on the scoreboard hanging over center ice.
We boarded the big yellow bus, which was our transportation for the evening, and after a quick roll call we were on our way to Philly. 19,130 fans filled the Wachovia Center last Thursday, Oct. 9. The lights were dimmed and holograms flashed over the ice as the Flyers players were introduced. As the announcer introduced the opposing Sabres lineup, Flyers fans would chant in unison, “Sucks,” after every name announced. The game was truly a great experience.
Bozzone works extremely hard to coordinate activities for students. I have been to three sporting events that Bozzone has arranged for students; two Philadelphia Sixers basketball games and now a Flyers hockey game, and each event I went to I was not disappointed.
Student activities are a wonderful thing to take advantage of. I noticed that when I went to purchase tickets even weeks after they had been available to Cabrini students that there were still plenty left to buy. Maybe there aren’t many sports fans at Cabrini, but I encourage everyone to see what activities Bozzone is planning throughout this year because they are a great way to change your routine weekend and they are relatively inexpensive.
Bozzone mentioned to those of us attending the Flyers game that he has some great events he is trying to coordinate. I don’t want to get anyone’s hopes up but we are on the waiting list for tickets to watch the Live with David Letterman show in NYC.
